Vestibular Syndrome experience by - Josh
Reading these experience really upsets me. You people all waste your time telling how your dog has the symptoms but don't say anything about the treatment and outcome? i'm reading this website hoping to find some info on what i can do to help my dog through this as it seems he isn't going to make it! my dog's symptoms have him "living" in a puppy pad lined cardboard box with his soft bed, laying on his side. that's it. he can't walk, he can't eat or drink on his own without me feeding him with my hand and giving him water through a syringe! his head is constantly cocked to the side and it seems he is stressing just to hold it up. if he gets any kind of excited he rolls over constantly and uncontrollably. its like a fight to stay right side up. i don't trust that my vet has done enough to save him. no xrays, only speculation that it is a problem with his brain. he says he won't know without an MRI which costs $1k! so i need to know ya'lls experiences!! what happened to your dogs!!???
